Definitely Worth It (For HIV Related Fat Loss in Cheeks) - San Francisco, CA

I had four treatments to counteract the effects of HIV fat loss in my cheeks. It looks fantastic and did so much for me psychologically. It's not cheap, but they have program where you can receive a pretty good discount on the product if you're income is less than $80K annually. You look great right at first due to the swelling, then it subsides slightly, then gradually fills in over...

I Am Happy with It After 4 Treatments

I did not expect Scuptra to turn me into George Clooney and I had very realistic expectations. I just wanted the un-natural sunken 'valleys' on my cheeks to be filled in. After four treatments, I am quite happy with the results and I have not experienced side effects described in here. I had some pin sized bruisings but they went away within days. I had my treatments from April to July 2009.

55 Year Old Male With Belly and Love Handles - San Francisco, CA

I've tried to stay in relatively good shape most of my adult life after being overweight throughout my childhood and teen years. My whole family is very overweight and we've all battled our weight most of our lives. Over the years, no matter how much I exercise or maintain a good eating regime, I've always had a protruding belly and love handles except for a few times when I did some extreme...

Dr. Echavez is a Restoration Artist - San Francisco, CA

Facial wasting prematurely made my face hollow and sad. Dr. Echavez was kind and sensitive to my particular needs. I supplied him with picture of my face before facial wasting. My wasting had been asymmetrical. After a few treatment, Dr. Echavez restored my face with a his precise and artistic hand. He gave me my face back! I am very happy with his work.

Michael is Patient, Kind and Does Great Work - San Francisco, CA

Michael helped me with minor restoration using Sculptra. He is patient, kind and has a great sense of humor. He also does fantastic work. He studies your face in detail and works with you to very subtly enhance your natural appearance. He is extremely talented and I have recommended him to several friends. Each person has been pleased with their results and they continue to see him. This is the highest compliment.

Because I'm Worth It - San Francisco, CA

Ok, so I stole the line from a shampoo commercial, but it is true. If having a little touch up makes me look and feel better about myself, so be it.

Dr Echavez Was Knowledgeable on my Options and Answered All Questions - San Francisco, CA

I've had several great experiences Dr Echaves, he takes his time to clearly explain what the procedures involved, risks, recovery expectations and the expected results. He was right on all accounts and would have no reservations recommending him to others. I am more than happy with the results I have seen (and continue to see) and would definitely return to Dr Echaves when needed.

I Love Dr Echavez! - San Francisco, CA

I was introduced to Dr Echavez a few years ago by a friend in NYC who swears by him. She's in the public eye and has to look "perfect." Ive seen Dr Echavez many times over the last few years. He's kind, patient, thorough and a straight shooter. He's truly in this business to help people, not for the money. I continue to see Dr Echavez and have referred several friends as well.

Great Skills, Caring Doc - San Francisco, CA

Dr. E is the best. Highly skilled, highly educated, and he really cares about his patients. I've been going to him for years, and wouldn't let anyone else near my money-maker ;-). He's not cheap, but this isn't a specialty where you want to go bargain-hunting. His experience shows every time I look in the mirror,
